for tuning in this evening. this is an important election and i'm concerned about america. i'm concerned about the direction america has been taking over the last four years. i know this is bigger than an election about the two of us as individuals. it's bigger than our respective parties. it's an election about the course of america. what kind of america do you want to have for yourself and for your children. and there really are two very different paths that we began speaking about this evening and over the course of this month we'll have two more presidential debates and a vice presidential debate. but they lead in different directions and it's not just looking to our words that you have to take into evidence to where they go. you can look at the record. there's no question in my mind if the president were to be re-elected you'll continue to see a middle class squeeze with incomes going down and prices going up. i'll get incomes up again. you'll see chronic unemployment. we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. if i'm president i will help create 12 million new jobs in

living in this country." election officials noted voter fraud can undermine the credibility of the election system, especially in the state that decided the contentious 2000 presidential race. >> anytime somebody that's not in the elections business comes in and does things that causes voters to doubt whether or not their vote will count, it actually affects voter turnout in a negative fashion. it causes voters to think that the whole system is not working. well, the system's working. it's people outside the system coming into it trying to profit from it. when folks try to profit from the chaos, it affects the turnout and it's unfortunate. >> fake names on registration forms connect echoed the scandal in 2008 that hurt acorn, the activist group. dozens of acork workers have been convicted, and acorn pled guilty in a voter registration felony case in indiana. there's been indictments of four democratic and election officials, facing trial in january. as for strategic allied consulting, it says it's registered more than 500,000 voters in the past eight years, but now the lates

to go until the elections, we're taking an in-depth look this morning at the effect latinos could have on election dame you know that saying there's power in numbers? well, latinos have exactly that. according to the latest census, there are more than 50 million latinos in the u.s., and of those, more than 12.2 million are expected to show up at the polls on election day. that is just over half of latinos who are eligible to vote. joining me now, as they do every week at this time, cnn contributor maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "the real ne" on the blaze. good morning to both of you. maria, how critical is the latino vote in swing states like florida, for example? >> it's very critical, randi, and especially in this close election. we saw already the latino vote being decisive. in 2008, president obama would not have been able to turn florida, new mexico, colorado, nevada, would not have been able to turn those blue and win the election had it not been for the latino vote. in 2010, latinos basically saved democrats from losing the senate, and harry reid says this all the time.
